DVD REVIEW: Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

November 20, 2009

From director Joss Whedon, DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG is an outrageously hip, laugh-out-loud funny, Emmy-winning, Sci Fi musical. One part Rocky Horror, one part Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and one part Little Shop of Horrors, Dr. Horrible captures the cheese of B-movie hero flicks with smart catchy musical numbers. Neil Patrick Harris is a delight in the title role. Both his acting and his singing never fail to impress. The plot follows the exploits of supervillian wannabe Horrible as he pursues the dual goals of defeating his superhero nemesis Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion) and trying to get close to his secret crush Penny (Felicia Day). The music is impressively well fleshed out and the overall production (shot in just six days) proves what type of quality entertainment can come from outside Hollywood’s major studio network. Five Stars.
